A terribly silly story ... that unashamedly glorifies war as a romantic adventure. The film is marked, however, by some fine location (Sudan) photography by Osmond Borrodaile and is worthy of mention ... because of one memorable scene in which Ralph Richardson goes blind through sunstroke and finds himself alone in the desert with only his dead comrades and vultures for company.
(R.A.E. Pickard, Dictionary of 1000 Best Films, 1971)
